Come closer and I’ll tell you

This is a photo I took of an elephant on the Chobe River in Botswana only a few weeks ago.

I love the wrinkles on the skin and the extra long eyelashes. The herd let us come very close as they stood deep in the river and munched on fresh wet grass.

They are enormous and often dangerous. They are intelligent with rules of engagement. As with Africa, be still and listen; engage and you’ll learn wonders; disrespect it and you’ll lose it.

I love the happy contented look in her eye as the sun set.

She seems to say: come closer, it’s ok, listen, be still, feel. Life is good.

For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday (if the contraction is permitted!)
